Fly.... you are confirming my suspicions, especially "turn signal sticking out is the biggest problem".
not thinking of this bike as an off road, I have others for that. it will definitely be doing gravel road & 2 track, probably some easy single track, but don't see where a skid plate will be required.
I haven't laid it over yet but it is pretty obvious the blinkers are vulnerable, and maybe some of the cowl. was thinking the HBs and weld another loop on just below the blinker
thanks for the input guys, anybody else "tested" the various crash bars?
if I'm answering your question I assume the basic points have been addressed, such as: did you do a compression test? is it still on fire?
